The team moved to Camp I (16,000 ft) today. They are planing to carry the loads to camp II tomorrow. Everyone is well and getting used to the altitude.

This stage of the climb is very important, because it is when the climbers complete the acclimatization process. From here they will do carries to higher altitudes, then sleeping at lower altitude, and just then moving to the next camp, where they will rest, carry again, then move up. Patience is the key.

We attach a picture from a previous trip.

We will post more news soon.
